what preview mode are you using?
F8 = preview from this slide. Maybe i should try F4?

F4/Preview project would probably do the same. You might try F12/Preview in browser. The problem there is it will build all the slides, not just the ones you want to see.
I'm sure there's a technical reason why it only works when viewed in the browser, but sorry I don't know. I've never seen it happen with anything I've worked on, maybe it's a hardware limitation?
It works with F12. However, it doesn't work with F4, F8 or F10. I'm using Captivate 5.0. I haven't tried 5.5 or a different machine yet.
As a workaround, I use a seperate 1-slide presentation to preview anything. If I want to preview, I copy and paste the slide from my master presentation to the demo presentation file.
If it bugs me enough, I'll try a different machine which has 5.5.
Does this happen with all the projects.
Please create a new project, add an object and apply any motion path effect.
Try to preview.
I created a new project with a single text box with a LeftToRight Ease motion path and fade in&out. It worked fine.
Either my current captivate file is corrupt, or there are too many things going on, making it jumpy.
OK, thats interesting.
Try to copy all the slides of your main project and paste in on a blank project.
Then try previewing.
